Digitalization is putting most daily business activities online. This dependency on the internet gives cybercriminals more opportunities to exploit organization’s system vulnerabilities. Within a few hours, these criminals can hack into a business and bring it crashing down. Recovering from these attacks can take years.
You may be saying to yourself, “My organization has a firewall. We’re safe.” Sadly, the days of relying on firewalls and email filters are long gone. These days a business’ best cybersecurity defense is its workers, which means cybersecurity awareness is a key defense tactic.
Accenture’s Ninth Annual Cost of Cybercrime Study shows that the average cost of cyber-attacks was $11.7 million in 2017. This number jumped to $13 million by the end of 2018. A sharp rise of 12% in the damage cost and cybercrime increment of 72% in the last five years further emphasizes the need for cybersecurity awareness.
As a decision-maker, it’s imperative to know not all cybersecurity awareness trainings are created equal. Many rely on on-demand videos, not real-life, everyday experiences and tracking.
